Last news S. Busquets
Barcelona released their squad on Friday for the match against Valencia. Quique Setién has recalled heavyweights Leo Messi, Sergio Busquets and Gerard Piqué for the match.
Has Barcelona changed now that Quique Setién is in charge? Has the tiki-taka' returned?, possession in more absolute terms, pressure at the start of the game, passing as a great emblem? Against Granada, Messi decided the game in the end, as is normal, but there is data that shows things are changing.
Quique Setien's influence was clear in Barcelona's win over Granada, but Sergio Busquets was not prepared to look backwards.
Barcelona's new coach Quique Setien has no concerns over the willingness of Barcelona's squad to adapt to his style of play.
Sergio Busquets, just like everyone at Barcelona, is preparing for the Super Cup game against Atletico. In an interview with 'ESPN', the midfielder was self critical and recognised that the Catalan club must improve.
Sergio Busquets' late withdrawal prior to Barcelona-Real Madrid raised eyebrows but Ernesto Valverde say he was out with illness.
Ernesto Valverde, the Barcelona coach, spoke in the press room after the 2-2 draw against Real Sociedad at the Anoeta. A result which could have changed after a possible penalty on Pique in the 92nd minute.
In the 12 minute of the match, Real Sociedad went in front from the penalty spot. Markel Oyarzabal tricked Ter Stegen and made it 1-0.
The RFEF's Competition Committee have rejected Barcelona's appeal and confirms Sergio Busquets will be suspended for one game after picking up five yellow cards so he will miss the match against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Bad news for Barcelona. Half an hour into the match against Leganés, CM Sergio Busquets got his 5th yellow card of the season, which means he will be suspended for 1 match. And this couldn't come at a worse time...
Lionel Messi delivered an incredible dead-ball hat-trick on Saturday to steer Barcelona to a 4-1 victory over Celta Vigo and ease the pressure on his coach Ernesto Valverde.
Barcelona's midfielder Sergio Busquets stated that the defeat his team suffered this Saturday against Levante (1-3) has little explanation and, although he said that it was not their best game, he stated that the punishment was "excessive".
Nemanja Radoja gave Levante a two goal cushion in the match against Barcelona. The midfielder's volley from inside the box took a deflection off Busquets and went into Ter Stegen's goal to make it 3-1.
Robert Moreno has ahead of him the difficult mission of finding a partner for Ramos, just behind him in the middle, and for Busquets, in the middle. The problem lies not in the lack of candidates, but in the number of them.
